the generally accepted way, is to:

cd /etc/mail
make all

then, there will appear some configuration files that are of the name of the 
server.  make all your edits to the [hostname].mc.  then, finish up with:

make all install restart

dont bother trying to edit the file... mergemaster will stomp your 
changes with a fresh copy of that file each time you upgrade.
